Lio Rush ambushes Joey Janela at GCW ‘Homecoming’

Lio Rush made his Game Changer Wrestling debut by ambushing Joey Janela at the conclusion of Janela's match.

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush was released from the WWE back in April as a part of the company’s mass cuts and furloughs. In the weeks and months following his release, Rush contemplated stepping away from the sport of pro wrestling to focus on music but he made his return at Game Changer Wrestling’s ‘Homecoming’ event in New Jersey.

Rush appeared at the conclusion of Joey Janela’s match against Yoshihiko for the DDT Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship. Rush came into the ring dressed as one of Yoshihiko’s “handlers” and hit a Spanish Fly on Janela and then took off his mask. Rush and Janela will compete against one another on day two of GCW Homecoming.

Lio Rush and Joey Janela have a storied history in pro wrestling that dates back to their days in CZW. Results from day one of GCW’s ‘Homecoming’ event will be in the 7/26 POST News Update. Day two of the GCW festivities kick off tomorrow at 5 PM EST.
